Three suspects arrested today in connection with an early morning robbery of a Circle K market in Perris have now been linked to four other robberies in the area, police said tonight.
The connection to the previous crimes was made after members of the Moreno Valley Robbery Suppression Team served two search warrants related to the robberies. One search warrant was served in the 300 Block of W. Barbour Street in Banning, and another in the 12000 block of Fredrick Street in Moreno Valley.
Evidence linking the suspects to the crimes was recovered at both locations. Beatrice Murray, 49, of Banning was arrested in Moreno Valley for four counts of burglary and receiving stolen property stemming from the robberies. Murray conspired to redeem stolen lottery tickets with the suspects and cashed over 100 stolen winning lottery tickets.
The three suspects in the Circle K robbery and linked to the other four crimes are:
Keon O'Neal Wooten, 28, of Moreno Valley
Kenneth Daniels Jr., 27, of Banning
Henry Jay Wilson, 24, of Moreno Valley
Wooten was charged with five counts of robbery with bail set at $750,000. Daniels was charged with five counts of robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery with bail set at $750,000. Wilson was charged with two counts of robbery with bail set at $750,000.
The clerk explained that three males entered the business wearing dark masks over their faces and two had what appeared to be semi-automatic handguns. The suspects stole cigarettes, lottery tickets and U.S. currency. A Dodge Neon was seen leaving the robbery. Perris officers located the vehicle and a vehicle pursuit ensued. The three suspects were later apprehended.
